environment to persist in 2013. >> reporter: a stronger euro makes imports of u.s. goods cheaper, and that could give some u.s. companies a boost in european sales. >> they'll get the most benefit from taking those euros that they earn abroad in europe and bringing them back home to the united states, where the currency has now become a little bit weaker. it'll have a little bit of a tailwind to their profits. >> reporter: much of the money printing in the u.s. and japan will likely pour into developing economies as investors hunt for bigger returns, but it could also inflate the currencies of those countries and create an asset bubble. >> the more monetary easing we see in the major economies, the more we are going to see a move towards interventionism and capital controls in the emerging economies. >> reporter: analysts say, come the g-20 meeting this weekend in moscow, any talk of a currency war will likely take place behind closed doors and away from the scrutiny of currency watchers. ruben ramirez, "n.b.r.," new york. >> susie: those tensions over foreign currencies will be
in an environment that's as safe as possible. >> look at the ncaa data, the 27 sports that they follow, women la crosse is in the lower third of overall injuries, very safe sport. >> reporter: the doctor said to put helmets in the game may have an adverse effect. >> unfortunately, sort of the seemingly simple answer of putting women in men's la crosse helmets and having them play a game that is more similar to men's la crosse will astronomically increase the injury burden for women for la crosse. >> reporter: so, is there a need for state law to decrease the chance for concussions. >> i understand where they're coming from with that. that may be part of the solution along with several other things that we're working on to get word out about how the game is played and how it needs to be coached and officiated and so forth. >> reporter: certainly we don't want to interfere with the integrity of the game. we need to make sure the discussion is pushed and people are taking seriously the discussion of injuries in girl's sports as well. >> reporter: in baltimore, i'm lamont williams, abc2 news. >> we'

that kate middleton needs to reware outfits baas it helps the environment. but some say he's picking on the wrong woman. >> can i just say your accent sound like dick van dyke. you can't do english accents anymore. >> neil: people don't know you're from the bronx. >> this is sour grapes. came up with punk, but at the same time -- >> neil: punk fashion? >> yes, but she got rejected by cate kate middleton in 2001 -- >> neil: so she has a judge. is mean to kate middleton she gets a lot of press. and she is introducing a knew new fashion -- neil theme other do we have a picture? >> she is a big -- >> and cate middleton wears many top designers, however she doesn't wear her. this is where you're getting comments from dame vivian about indicate middle don. when she gave the interview she was wearing a t-shirt that said, i am julian a swung. she is claiming that indicate -- kate middleton should not reware her outfits, but because it's good for the environment to rewear your clothes. kate middleton is among the most photographed women in the world, not unlike princess diana. >> i don't have
by september 11. in the short-term, -- we can just decide to live in more urban environment. in the long term, we can be more healthy. dick jackson's famously asked the question, what sort of environment or city are you most likely to die in a pool of blood? that is how he puts it to his audiences. they compared murder by strangers, crime, to car crashes and added the two together. in all three places you are safer in the gritty cities because the accommodation of those two. fourteen americans die every year from asthma, it's easy, everyday from asthma. it is three times the rate of the '90s and entirely due to automotive exhaust. ninety something percent. it's not what it used to be. finally, it is the environmental discussion thread which has turned 180 degrees and last 10 years. the vulcan project maps where our apartment for a prince are. red is bad, green is good. it looks like the united states sky at night. that carbon footprint, scott bernstein in chicago said what happened to the center of measuring co2 per mile? we start measuring co2 per household. well, they're only a certain numb
. it will need to be done in an environment where as we broaden the base, we both contribute to deficit reduction and hopefully are able to lower rates. on the business side, we have a contradiction in our fiscal tax system. our statutory rate is high. our effective rate is not as high. when you look at the united states against other countries, it the statutory rate makes the u.s. look unattractive compared to others. for individual firms, their average tax rate is much lower because of all of the complicated provisions that are part of the code now. it would be a challenge to take on those individual credit. there's no way way to bring the rate down. that is something i think we need to do to maintain competitiveness abroad. >> you still believe that going down the road we need to reduce that to get the rate down? >> i do. when one looks at a table of international tax rates, it stands up at u.s. statutory rate is high. it is a complicated story to tell that the average rate is lower. it does not affect all businesses equally. we need a simpler tax code. >> could you briefly comment on somethin

% of business owners that were surveyed identified the current environment as a bad time to expand and political uncertainty topped the list for the reasons not to attempt economic growth. lee, a resident of muskogee, oklahoma, and president of acme corporation, said a lot of small businesses had to go in debt to stay afloat. he said now they can't make the money they need to to pay down debts due in large part the environment the government has created. i joined a small group of members in congress. i have faced unprecedented difficulties ensuring my business succeeded. i step on the floor of the united states house of representatives with a firsthand understanding how high the hurdles are for a business to succeed and just simply jump over. last month when president obama was sworn into his second term, i was reminded of something he said four years ago in his first inauguration. the president said, "the question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small but whether it works, whether it helps families finds a job at a decent wage, care they can afford or retirement tha
in this country in a lawless environment through a natural disaster or a riot, and the story was about a place called korea town. there are marauding gangs going throughout the area looting and robbing and raping. >> i'm sorry to be corrective, but korea town, we have checked with scholars of the 1992 riots in lasmth and the evidence for marauding gangs of rapists is pretty thin. who is lindsey graham describing here? >> exactly. there's an old and ugly tradition in this country of vilifying and creating these nightmare scenarios of roving basically black young men and brown young men as this violent, crazy criminal element and you have to arm yourself because gangs of them -- >> people like your husband, like your children. >> exactly. >> people like my children. >> exactly. meanwhile, brooklyn is one of the most gentrified communities in this country. places like redhook and places that used to be really impoverished and difficult areas are becoming quite gentrified and the people who live there are more yuppies, but even if they still were communities of color that were largely poor, demoni
between our environment and our economy. that really hit home for latinos and for all of us. carbon pollutions from the dirty power plants and saying no to the keystone and tar sands pipeline. [applause] president obama's legacy, his response, his resolve in responding to the climate crisis. the zero oil industry claims that the keystone pipeline is for our energy security. we know that this pipeline is the industry new access to foreign markets and the ability to sell their tar sands from more money. it is win-win for them. what about us? what about ensuring we have what we need to make sure our families have economic security and health security? it's a lot for all of us when it comes to clean air and clean water in our climate. we also keep hearing about these job killing regulations. for millions of americans, especially minority and low-income communities, clean air protections are lifesaving regulations. this is another big reason why environmental issues are registering on the mind of some and a latino families today. we and unequivocal support lowering the pollution from pow
and this disparity indeed may grow in a resource constrained environment. these challenges combined with these destabilizing effects of terrorist and critical networks will make general rodriquez' task at africom among the most complicated in the department. an additional matter in the africom aor is committee watches closely is the ongoing u.s. support operations in central africa to assist the multinational effort to remove joseph kony and his top lieutenants from the battlefield. this committee and general inhofe has been very active in this effort and assad to ensure that this mission is adequately resourced including additional intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities. general rodriquez i know you are familiar with this mission and the committee looks forward to hearing from you about it and to working with you on it and so many of the other challenges he will be facing. i'm going to turn the gavel over to senator kaine who has agreed to take over because i must go to the floor and i i will call upon the senator inhofe. >> thank you mr. mr. mr. chair i join you

, if you ask me. he will talk about the environment, green energy products. that is his infrastructure plan. david: windmill power is more offensive now than 30 years ago we began spending tens of billions of dollars on it so has government spending helped us to get more energy for wind? the answer is no. natural gas, oil, those things have helped but those things are against the policies. dennis: david asman, thank you very much. join tomorrow night at 10:00 eastern time for television's best coverage of the state of the union. dennis: and the blizzard of 2013, spike in heating oil prices. last week, where are they headed now? phil flynn with those details. cheryl: one more argument for solar power. a guest to give us ideas on how you can make money. dennis: and, a a look at oil.
